New Canning System Debuts

Wild Goose Engineering develops canning line for craft industry

Wild Goose Engineering, a small Boulder, Colorado manufacturing company has invested its future in craft breweries by designing and building small canning lines. The company has hired 10 people just to handle that part of their business.

The idea to make the lines came two years ago when Wild Goose was neighbors with the fledgling Upslope Brewing in a Boulder business park. Upslope was the second Colorado brewer after Oskar Blues to use canning as its exclusive means of packaging beer.

The experiment worked, and Wild Goose installed a new, automated system for Upslope last September.

They have just delivered a sizeable line to Breckenridge Brewing and they have orders from nearly ten other craft breweries.

    Got a chance to see the prototype @ Upslope this past April. Simple, effective and a chance for small brewers to enter the canning segment. Now just have to get the can manufacturers to lower their moq’s for the small guys too.

    I’m really curious to learn about the technology after years of running/ maintaining bottle lines. Are there any resources out there specific to craft beers?
